The insanity of religion, HPV version

Imagine that science has discovered a common virus that is known to cause cancer. Now imagine that science has created a vaccine that prevents people from contracting the virus. If you have kids, would you give your children the vaccine? Of course you would. Children get vaccines for many viruses like mumps, measles, polio, etc. as an effective way of protecting them against disease.

But if you are religious, and if the disease is Cervical cancer, and the preventitive step is the HPV vaccination, then all bets are off, as demonstrated by this article:

Girls denied cervical cancer vaccine

in this case, Christian parents are intentionally denying their children protection against a common form of cancer because of their religious delusion. The delusion is so advanced that it has impaired the ability of parents to protect their own children. That is a powerful delusion.

    “Christian parents are interntionally [sic] denying their children protection against a common form of cancer because of their religious delusion.”

    How do they know that the vaccine isn’t god’s way of protecting their children?

    Because, you silly twit, if god didn’t WANT them to get cervical cancer, then he would just make sure they didn’t get it. God don’t need no silly vaccine.

    Anyone who truly believes “god’s will be done” would be foolish to EVER vaccinate their children, or treat them with modern medicine… I mean, look what happened to poor Moses just for tapping his staff on the rock too many times.

    From a health standpoint, some are concerned that the vaccine doesn’t provide enough protection since it doesn’t prevent all strains of the disease, including some that can cause cervical cancer. In addition, the vaccine is so new that little is known about the long-term effects.

    It is not uncommon for parents to wait and see how the vaccine evolves. Many parents do not vaccinate their kids since some vaccinations actually can cause disease and in some cases lead to Autism.

    That is an urban myth, completely debunked:

    “It’s been so rewarding to see the scientific progress being made toward understanding what causes autism and in developing better treatments for individuals with autism. While there are still a handful of parents who, in almost a religious way, cling to the notion that vaccines cause autism, the vast majority of parents and scientists have accepted what the data clearly show. There is no data to support an autism vaccine link. There never has been. Vaccines don’t cause autism.

    A decade ago most agreed that we need to study vaccines in relation to autism. We had to reconcile the fact that the number of vaccines children were receiving was increasing, and at the same time, the number of children who were being diagnosed with autism also was on the rise. But fortunately this was a question that could be studied – and answered – by science. We looked at children who received vaccines and those who didn’t, or who received them on a different, slower schedule. There was no difference in their neurological outcomes. We’ve done multiple studies looking at the measles, mumps and rubella vaccination in relation to autism. We’ve looked at thimerosal, a mercury-based preservative, and its relation to autism. The studies are very clear; there is no relationship in the data between vaccines and autism. Read the studies themselves below.”

    The Federal government’s VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System) was established by Congress under the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Compensation Act of 1986. It receives approximately 11,000 reports of serious adverse reactions to vaccinations per year, which include as many as 100 to 200 deaths, and several times that number of permanent disabilities.

    I see “T” who is “A” who is Hor wants to divert attention again from his lack of evidence for his imaginary god.

    Hor, skip the crap. Provide evidence that the camp-fire stories of bronze-age goat herders, that you laughingly accept as real, are anything other than myths, legends, and placebos to keep the ignorant and stupid from being afraid of the dark.
